    BTW, pretty sure his mother’s maiden name is Shannon.

      I meant to say Horton, though, I can’t seem to find any more information on her. That might be another married name; but I’ve not found a “McIntyre” connected to the Westbrooks.

    Russell’s paternal grandfather was Russell Westbrook (I); her was from Arkansas. (Russell 1’s father was also named Russell, though he must have had a different middle name since he’s not refered to as anything other than Russell Westbrook. This Russell’s wife was Willie Mae Collier. Again, all from Arkansas.)

    Russell’s paternal grandmother is Martha Ann Carter, Robinson or Dodson; I can’t find which one is her maiden name; I THINK it’s Robinson. She is also from Arkansas.
